Court of Justice of the European Union Advocate General Manuel Campos Sánchez-Bordona said in an opinion the court should uphold its 2016 ruling on data retention for national security cases, Reuters reports. The court found "general and indiscriminate" retention of data does not comply with the ePrivacy Directive. Campos Sánchez-Bordona's opinion was based upon cases in France, Belgium and the U.K., where the governments have called for more authority to override data privacy rules. The CJEU is expected to issue its next ruling in the coming months.
